The waiting game
Rose to another magnificent sunrise. However, more cloudy skies with the occasional drops of rain. Becoming quite ominous towards mid day. Rumours of the Birdsville Track closed because of rain – no comms with Rudi and Andy supposedly on the way up here via the Birdsville Track. We are really being thrown a succession of curve balls in getting out of Birdsville. Although the locals have been fantastic and welcomed us in as one of them, the feet are itching, and it is time to move on! Had a great night at the pub chatting to Rob, a geologist from Bathhurst, that has a few dirt bikes in the shed and has done multiple Simpson crossings. Great time chatting about all the old bikes, CR500’s YZ500’s and Maico 490’s – one thing in common – speed !! Spent the morning doing washing, airfilters and changed the sprockets on the 400EXC – worn thin by wrong tyre choice. Now just waiting for the truck to reach town – holding thumbs. Cheers till later.
